Lunch Ashford House – March 14, 2019

Lunch Ashford House – March 14, 2019

We had planned this lunch a week or so before and were all looking forward to an Ashford House lunch right before St. Patty’s day. Lots of Irish “soul food” choices on the menu. It was a more somber occasion than we planned since we had just been told about Bill Simon’s passing. We appreciated

The Southside Diehard Crew – January 23, 2019

The Southside Diehard Crew – January 23, 2019

The diehard Southside crew met for lunch at Porter Cullen’s Irish Pub in Evergreen Park despite the cold and snow. We thought that was a cold day – little did we know that a mere week later this would be like tropical weather compared to -50 degree wind chill weather. A Killian’s Red would warm

Christmas Lunch December 9, 2018

Christmas Lunch December 9, 2018

  The Christmas luncheon at Traverso’s was a well attended event. We were two short of those planning to attend, however, due to illness. Lynn Murphy was having issues with her back and was not able to attend, and Jim Weimer was in Palos Hospital with heart related problems. Both are doing better now and

Holiday Lunch – December 10, 2017

Holiday Lunch – December 10, 2017

December 10th was a bright cold day – and perfect for the Ethelreda 2017 Holiday Lunch. Traverso’s was an inspired pick, and early in the day (12:30 pm) worked out to perfection as we had the whole restaurant to ourselves almost until we were ready to leave.  It is getting harder and harder to find

Carlucci Get-Together – August 7, 2016

Carlucci Get-Together – August 7, 2016

Here are about 30 pictures of the get-together on August 7th. As you will see in all but the posed group pictures, it was the typical grade school configuration of all the girls on one side of the table, and all the boys on the other side. Some things never change. Those of us that

April 24, 2016 Event – Pinstripes

April 24, 2016 Event – Pinstripes

It was a cozy event that five of us attended on a beautiful sunny day. First was lunch, followed by a killer game of bocce ball. Only three wanted to play, so it was Patti and Sue against Roger. Of course the girls won. A very fun and not too demanding a game that is

Roger Smith – February 2016

From Roger: Fort Benning Georgia – I haven’t been there since 1965. I took my basic training for the Army at Benning. Recently Darlene and I went there to see a friend’s son graduate from basic training. The place is totally different now. There are all new buildings – only a few of the old

Get Together August 22, 2015

Get Together August 22, 2015

It was the perfect day. Tucked under a beautifully marbled blue sky, the Normandy-style structure surrounded by terraced gardens and rolling lawns leading down to the softly lapping water of the lake welcomed the ’59ers. Comfortable temperature, no humidity, and not a fly or mosquito to be found. Reminiscent of Camelot, where “… July and
